US presses China over Tiananmen

The US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has called on the Chinese government to publish the names of those killed or missing in the Tiananmen Square protests of June 1989.

It is exactly 20 years since the Chinese government sent in tanks to end the demonstrations.

Hundreds of people - perhaps many more - were killed in the subsequent massacre in Beijing.

The BBC's James Reynolds reports.
